Great app - postcards don’t seem to mail quickly

I love this app and service! The one thing I think could be improved is to mail postcards on the day uploaded (or next mailing day). I’ve been sending a series of postcards to one recipient, 1 or 2 postcards every couple of days, and the first four arrived in a clump, suggesting that they were mailed in a batch spanning multiple days. Not a big deal but I won’t be mailing as often knowing they won’t be sent serially.

Thank You Postcards!

I’ve used this app for several years. In the early years, we lived away from family and my parents received Postcardly photos of their grandchildren almost weekly. The girls enjoy looking through those now that we live nearby. Over the years I have sent the cards for various holidays too. Most recently, I used this app for my daughter’s birthday thank you cards. We took pictures of her with her friends at the party, and typed up personal notes for each friend. If you want to be super quick there is an option to use the same card. Once you have your contact list created (which we had from previous parties) it is super quick and easy. I like that there is no need to go out and buy cards or stamps.

Great but buggy

Great idea, excited to use it but it is really buggy.
I jumped right in and tried to send myself a card and after selecting photo, note, address, I got to the finish and signed up to create a profile only to return to a “operation timeout” to start again. So I closed and opened up again to repeat & execute but then it didnt accept my card with an “operation failed” alert due to “the card type field must only accept alpha numeric characters.. unrecognized card”. So I re-entered three separate times double, and then triple checking the information from my Master Card, yet still repeated the same failure. If you can’t take my money then I guess it doesn’t work. I had to give up. Maybe I’ll check in again someday.
Hope to get it up and running because it’s a great idea. Good luck.
